PUBG may come back to India soon as the mobile game backed by PUBG Corporation has compromised its partnership with Tencent Games (TG) to remove the “Chinese tag.” PUBG Corp is owned by Krafton, a South Korea-based company.
So we got the hint for PUBG’s return from a recent job posting on LinkedIn, which is for a ‘Corporate Development Division Manager’ for India. The interesting point was that PUBG Corp posted this job on 20 October on behalf of the current parent company, not TG. Following the ban in India, the mobile game giant said that it is hoping to find a solution by working with the Indian Government.
The corporation also clarified that it has decided not to authorize the TG mobile game franchise in India. PUBG Corp will take all the publishing responsibilities and have committed to doing it by creating a healthy and localized gameplay environment for the players.
About the job posting, the corporation is looking for applicants who can develop M&A and investment strategy in the context of the Indian market and also related to, but not limited to, the gaming sector. Also, the mobile game owner has shown hints about setting its operations in India. It has mentioned WFH or the location where the company will set up. Furthermore, the role also states that the person should help set up the operations with the HQ directions.
The job posting on LinkedIn hints about the comeback of the popular game PUBG and that the company is serious about partnership and investment opportunities in India. The company needs someone who can lead M&A, investment, and partnerships in the related sector.
To conclude, PUBG Corporation has made up its mind and will soon continue the PUBG game in India.
